$6M is really incredibly cheap for a decent 1B, really. Over the last three years as a part-time player, Napoli has been worth over $10M each year (http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?pl ... position=C).

I think we can agree that the important factor is maximizing the return on Napoli, as he himself doesn't have much inherent value to the team as a player. By the time we're competing he'll most likely be overpriced, if he isn't already. You seem to think that he'll boost his value after 2011, which could be true. I really don't think it's a big deal though and we probably wouldn't have got much for him if we waited; probably about the same, give or take. They'd prefer to save a bunch of cash I guess and it's pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme. Like I said in my first post on the topic, he's been traded twice and neither team got much of anything for him. And this coming off a season where he apparently showed himself to be competent at a position on the field and was cost controlled for two seasons. Meh. I don't get the hullabaloo that this has caused, it just doesn't seem very important.

What hullabaloo? I've seen mostly positive reaction to this from the fans and the media. Really, I actually seem to be one of the few Jays fans actually criticizing the loss in value. It's not a huge deal, I just think there were better ways to use the asset that is Mike Napoli.

And yeah.. that's me. Took a few years' hiatus.

Not sure how I remembered something that far back, it's probably because you were a Jays fan.

was he really that good defensively at 1B?
why did the Angles never use him at 1B before? I assume the only reason he played there in 2010 was because Morales was hurt. I checked his minor league numbers, and he does have experience at 1B. in 2004 he played 36 games at 1B, 65 games total in the minors.
I would say as C he really wasn't as valuable as some may think. doesn't seem like he was that good at throwing out runners. I would also think that if he was good enough defensively at C that the Angles would have played him more than Jeff Mathis.

maybe there could have been a contending team that was willing to give up a good prospect if the Jays had waited until during the 2011 season.

I posted in a thread, can't remember which one, asking if he was LBJ. The fact that he's a Jays fan and he won't go away in any discussion had me thinking he was LBJ. The new avatar was a dead giveaway.

Go Gryphons! :-D

wow, you remember the school I went to? I remember I had an economics prof with the same name as Mookie. Patrick something. Guelph is long in my past though, I worked for a couple years and went back to school for chemical engineering.
